Win a free Kauai vacation from HAWAII Magazine for your best Hawaii photo


Got an amazing photo you took on your last Hawaii vacation? And we mean, truly amazing.

It could win you another trip to the Islands in our 12th annual HAWAII Magazine Photo Contest!  The contest is open to entries now through Aug. 6, 2010.

As always, we’re looking for the best photos from our HAWAII Magazine reader ohana, shot in the most beautiful collection of islands in the world. (That would be Hawaii, by the way.)

You can send us photos of anything Hawaii: our beaches, valleys, people, animal life, sunrises, sunsets, happenings, surf, buildings, waterfalls, etc. It’s really up to you. All we ask is that the photo (or photos) must have been taken in Hawaii.

free_Hawaii_vacation_best_photo_contestWe’re giving away nine prizes this year—one grand prize, four first-place prizes and four second-place prizes—all of ‘em pretty sweet, if we’re allowed to brag a bit.

Our 2010 photo contest’s grand prize is airfare for two to the island of Kauai from the winner’s nearest Hawaiian Airlines gateway city, plus a six-night stay at the Outrigger Kiahuna Planatation in Poipu. The grand prize winner will also get a $250-value assortment of 100 percent Kona coffee from Hula Daddy—sponsor of our HawaiiMagazine.com Reader Photo of the Week contest.

First place winners will receive $100 cash and gift baskets from Hawaii’s Gift Baskets and Hawaiian Body Products.

Second place winners receive $75 cash, a $75 gift certificate from The Cookie Corner, a macadamia cooking oil sampler from Oils of Aloha and a honey gift set from Big Island Bees.

You may enter your photos in four categories: Oahu, Maui, Kauai or Big Island. Of course, photos need to have been shot on the island corresponding to the category being entered.

You may enter up to eight photos, but no more than two per category. Photos entered into HawaiiMagazine.com’s Reader Photo of the Week may also be resubmitted for the annual contest, but must follow all official mailing directions and contest rules.
